Data miners have found the next Exotic weapon coming to Fortnite Season 5: The Frozen SMG. Here’s everything we know.
When Fortnite v15.20 was released, Epic added two new Exotic weapons to the game in the Burst Quad Launcher and Chug Cannon. While the downtime was still active, however, data miners announced a third Exotic coming with the patch.
The third Exotic was nowhere to be found when players first opened Fortnite. We don’t know whether or not Epic planned to add the Frozen SMG in the latest patch and bailed at the last minute.
When looking at the stats, the Frozen SMG looks to be the same as the Legendary Compact SMG – better known as the P90.
Naturally, we can assume that this weapon will have some sort of special property to it, which makes it Exotic. The most logical feature would be giving players the Chiller effect when hit, forcing them to run around with ice on their feet.
Hypex got a glimpse of the weapon model in-game, which you can view below.
When will the Frozen SMG release?
For now, we don’t know when the Frozen SMG is coming to Fortnite. Since it’s already in the game files, we could see it activated any day now. Unlike most other leaks, we don’t have to wait for a patch to see it.
We also don’t have any idea why Epic held it back. There could’ve been a bug with the gun, or they could be waiting until next week after the release of two Exotics in v15.30.
Of course, we’ll keep you posted when the Frozen SMG comes to Fortnite and how to get your hands on it, so stay tuned.
Fortnite leak points to NPC drivers & boss vehicles
A new Fortnite leak suggests we could see NPC drivers and/or vehicle bosses come to the game in Fortnite Season 6.
A new Fortnite leak points to NPC drivers coming to the game along with possible vehicle bosses we could eliminate for loot.
Fortnite is one of the most constantly evolving games in the industry. Season 5 was drastically different from Season 4, which was drastically different from Season 3. We’re getting close to Fortnite Season 6, and the rumors are already swirling.
From all of the information that we have, it looks like Season 6 is going to focus more heavily on vehicles. We’ve already seen leaks about vehicle mods coming to the game, along with a Gas Flopper that could be related to fuel rather than – well, stink.
The latest leak comes from an AI spawner in the game files that went overlooked by a lot of data miners. Mang0e, one of the Fortnite data miners, suggested that these spawners could relate to NPC drivers and even vehicle-based bosses we’ll need to take down.
These bosses could be trucks, helicopters, boats, planes, or any other vehicle we’ve seen in Fortnite. Something like this would be a natural evolution of the bosses and AI enemies – such as the Marauders, Gorgers, and IO Guards.
With Season 5 winding to a close, we probably won’t see any of these new vehicle features until Season 6. Of course, this is only speculation anyway. These files could relate to something completely different – or only be a test asset from the developers.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about anything related to Fortnite Season 6. Make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on the latest Fortnite news.
Fortnite leak points to potential Family Guy crossover
New Fortnite leaks suggest that Peter Griffin from Family Guy could be coming as the next Season 5 crossover skin.
Fortnite Season 5 has no shortage of big-name crossovers. New leaks now have fans speculating about a possible crossover with the hit show Family Guy.
The latest Fortnite season has brought characters from video games, films, and TV to the island and to the Item Shop. Just when you think that Epic have delivered the biggest crossover possible, they surprise fans with another one.
Street Fighter was the latest crossover to come to Fortnite, with the skins still in the Item Shop at the time of writing. This fact doesn’t stop fans from speculating about what’s coming next.
Fortnite data miner, @GMatrixGames, found some images in the game files related to an unreleased skin. These images showed Peter Griffin from Family Guy, dancing with Brian and fighting the Giant Chicken. Naturally, this makes fans think that Peter will be coming to Fortnite before the end of the season.
This recent leak fit with another leak regarding an XL skin. Data miner, @Mang0e, tweeted about an XL skin coming to the game. Peter would fit this mold quite well.
Originally, Mang0e said that Thanos was the only XL skin in the game files. We thought that Epic may be releasing Thanos as a playable skin – a move that makes sense but isn’t nearly as exciting as the prospect of playing Fortnite as Peter Griffin.
We’re all very excited to see a Fortnite X Family Guy crossover, but this is only speculation. We can’t get our hopes too high until we hear an official teaser from Epic.
We could see a lot of cosmetic opportunities here, with multiple skins and Stewie or Brian as Back Bling. While you wait for more news, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything about Fortnite’s next crossover.
Fortnite leak points to potential Thanos skin in Season 5
A new leaks suggests that Thanos could return to the game as a bounty hunter skin before the end of Fortnite Season 5.
Fortnite Season 5 is the season of crossovers. One new leak suggests that the next crossover could return to Fortnite’s first-ever collaboration, bringing a Thanos skin to the game.
Fortnite players probably haven’t thought of Thanos in a long time, but he was the centerpiece of the first-ever Fortnite crossover event. Epic Games teamed up with Marvel Studios to release the first Fortnite X Avengers crossover before the release of the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.
Back then, before the days of LTMs, we had the Infinity Gauntlet fall from the sky in the base Fortnite mode, allowing players to transform into Thanos and destroy the lobby. This was the original version of the Infinity Blade.
The next year, before Endgame released, Epic had another Avengers crossover – this time with an LTM attached. Both modes were generally well-received by the Fortnite community.
Since then, we’ve seen countless skins and crossovers added to Fortnite. This season, Chapter 2 Season 5, has presented more crossovers than ever before.
We’ve also started to get larger skins than we had back in the day. Rippley, Big Chuggus, and other Fortnite skins have broken the mold by offering larger, buffer outfits.
This has led a lot of players to wonder, why we never got a Thanos skin. Well, new leaks suggest that this could be a possibility in Season 5
. According to Fortnite data miner, Man0e, an animation for an extra-large male skin was added to Fortnite in v15.40. “Oddly enough though,” he wrote, “the only XL male skin that currently exists is Thanos.”
Of course, we don’t know whether or not this skin will be Thanos, but the addition of the Titan would make a lot of sense. Season 5 has had more crossovers than any season, and we could see Epic bringing him back as a Bounty Hunter.
What’s more, adding a Thanos skin is now possible, thanks to the several other XL skins we already have. Thanos wouldn’t need to be much bigger than Big Chuggus or Rippley.
This is only speculation and we won’t know more until the next patch or until Epic release an official teaser. Fingers crossed that Thanos makes his way back to Fortnite by way of the Item Shop.
